Colorado Springs, Colorado—-This month the heat record of 90 –degree hit Colorado Springs. This month was hotter than in any other September in history.
The city defeats one heat record after another. Tuesday’s high of 93 was the seventh September day to reach 90 degrees or higher.
This breaks the previous record of Six September days in 1960, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.
The temperature also broke the Sept.18 record of 89 degrees, set in 1962. Eric Peterson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Pueblo said the recent heat was prompted by high pressure over the central and eastern two-thirds of the U.S. right now.
The weather has been like this for two or three weeks. The meteorologist said the stagnant weather pattern is spotted.
We have witnessed rather hot weather with this pattern in lots of places of U.S. The causes of hot and wet weather is not determined yet.
According to Chris Cuoco, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Grand Junction, the city marked the 90th day of 90 degrees on Tuesday. It breaks the record of 1977.
Cuoco said to determine the causes of the weather pattern, they have to look at a whole season nationally, hemi spherically and globally.
The heat has increased the danger of fire in Colorado. But the good news is that temperatures in Colorado Springs will change, from the 90s to 60s and 70s.
